Black Panther Party

A timeline of the Black Panther Party (1966-1982)

“On May 2, 1967, thirty armed Panthers […] went to the Californian State Capitol in Sacramento to protest the Mumford Act, that repealed a law allowing public carrying of loaded firearms. The Black Panther Party burst upon America’s consciousness when media from all over the world covered this protest” (Shames 2016, 27)
